Catherine Storm has returned to Sanibel Island. She seeks the tranquility and solitude that her favorite getaway spot has always offered while she struggles with decisions she must make regarding her career and her future. The last thing Cat expects is to find herself in the arms of a troubled, former Special Forces commander – while dodging an assassin’s bullets.
After more than a decade in the Army, Colton James put down his rifle and picked up his camera to block out the haunting images of his last mission in Afghanistan. His days of protecting the innocent are behind him – or so he thinks until he literally runs into the short-tempered, independent pixie who has unwittingly become the target of a killer.
Who wants Cat dead and why? While they search for answers, Colt knows he must do everything in his power to keep this woman safe – because whether she realizes it or not, her future lies with him.
Josette Boussard is on the run—running toward the only person she can trust, the only man she’s ever loved. Beaten, battered and off the grid, Josie has no idea who is after her but it has something to do with a message that was sent to her by a friend—a friend who is now missing.
After attending the wedding of his former Special Forces commander, Lieutenant Steve Brody has decided it’s time to track down Josie and settle things between them. The status of their “marriage” has remained in limbo long enough. But before he leaves Sanibel Island in search of her, an unconscious Josie is literally dropped into his arms.
While Steve and Josie deal with the issues that have kept them apart, they must also work to discover who is hunting Josie—because it has become increasingly clear that the price for the information she possesses is her life.
